I think you have Wilbert to thank for those. I think a LOT of us have
Wilbert to thank for those <grin>.
I received the Anchomanes dalzellii and I'm patiently waiting for them to
put their little heads above ground. Waiting, Waiting, Waiting....
Last year I received seed from Wilbert of Am. lewallei and I have 4 little
plants growing along. One is dormant at the moment and I repotted, finding
a tuber about an inch wide with 5 growth points on it. Does anyone know if
this is normal for Am. lewallei? There looks like 2 points on the tuber,
plus three tiny tubers sitting on the outside, each with a tiny growth
point. I haven't messed with the otehrs to check but this was a nice
surprise to see it going so well. THANK YOU WILBERT!!
